Enlighten your day, gladden your heart

To the Editor:

Something new and inspirational is happening at the First United Methodist Church of Voorheesville! In addition to the very enlightening and motivational Traditional Services, including the angelic singing of the choir, the congregation has been supporting a new Modern Service at 11 a.m. on Sundays. The Modern Service was brought about to appeal to those who enjoy a service with spiritual energy and praise music to lift them up!

The service is supported by an eight-piece band called “Ebenezer,” which means “Rock of Help.” They play electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, drums, and percussion instruments along with using their beautiful voices.

The Modern Service is a bit less formal than the Traditional Service. It is intended for those who may be seeking a relationship with Jesus Christ but have a different comfort zone with respect to how they would like to worship.

All are welcome to both the Traditional Service at 9 a.m. and the Modern Service at 11 a.m. every Sunday. The only change to this schedule will be on Sunday, Dec. 22, the two services will be combined for worship beginning at 10 a.m.

So please accept the church’s invitation and my personal invitation to come and join us for a spirited and soulful service that will enlighten your day and gladden your heart!

The church’s traditional Christmas concert is this Sunday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m. and offers all the joyous melodies of the season. In addition, on Sunday, Dec. 22, at 4 p.m. there will be a Praise Band Christmas Concert that will be playing and singing with vitality and jubilance in praise of this wonderful time of year when we celebrate Christmas!

Join with all of us in fellowship and singing, or let yourself just be entertained! Peace be with you and let love be in your heart!

Merry Christmas to all!
